We have eaten here whenever we are in Varenna. The food is very good. the menu is extensive. The pannacotta was delicious and I would recommend the rissotto with perch.

Really enjoyed our lunch here last weekend - had a nice table for two on the terrace and a simple meal of pasta each with a carafe of the house white, which was very drinkable and great value. I had the seafood linguine which was excellent and the best I had during our 3 days at Lake Como. The service... More

We sat in the covered in area outside. It has a beautiful painting on the wall (shown in the photos), which make it seem not so closed in. My husband had a pizza which he said was really good, I had a seafood salad (which weirdly had lots of seafood and not much salad...) it was ok, our children had... More

We were a bit disappointed in this place, which is highly reviewed by some travel writers. It's definitely a local hangout, which I guess speaks well to the food, but our pasta dishes were simply OK, but in no way special. The pizza was quite acceptable, but no better than in multiple other restaurants in the area which we tried.... More

Very pleasant small restaurant in the centre of Varenna - in the main square not overlooking the sea. We had two different pizzas - both excellent. Sea Food on one was fresh and tasty with generous portions. Good wine list - not a extensive but well chosen. Fair prices and friendly service. Family run. Recommended.

The pizzas here were recommended to us by our Aibnb host in Varenna, and they were delicious! Service was friendly and informal, and the food was produced really quickly too. You've got to have a pizza when you're in Italy, and this was just the ticket.

On the edge of the main square, this rustic style eatery has an informal atmosphere and country style charm. The menu offers a variety of regional dishes, including locally caught fish from lake Como. I ordered an antipasto of Missoltoni, in this case, Agoni, salted and dried freshwater herring, that came with three or four Alborelle (anchovy style small, thin... More

Our first night in Varenna and we were jet lagged and just wanted a good meal. It was cold and rainy so I ordered some lasagne as comfort food and my wife got the seafood pasta. My lasagne was slightly above average but the seafood pasta was really not good. Tasted like they drowned it in canned clam juice and... More

Arrogant, unfriendly staff. At the end of the evening the owner tried to rip me off by putting extra dishes on the bill. When I asked for an explanation he even tried to deny it.

We did not stay in the hotel but we were the only customers in the restaurant that night and so our food was served pretty quickly. The food was great at a great price. The person who ran the place even served us limoncello on the house. The texture of the limoncello was smooth and although I did not finish... More
